Living in a hamlet or small town has a quaint, charming quality.

I refer to a setting where nearly everyone is acquainted with almost everyone else. First names are commonly exchanged, there is a neighborhood bar where people congregate, and there are probably a few other structures nearby, such as a post office, a funeral home, and a store.

The point I’m making is that occasionally it’s wonderful to impart the feeling of a close-knit group to others. It’s not for everyone, of course, but it seems like many of us in the human race prefer living in a flock to being out in the wilderness by ourselves.

That said, I’m not sure how many individuals can genuinely claim they’d prefer to live in a community where everyone has a home on the same block!

That’s the situation with the citizens of a European community that became well-known on Twitter earlier this month after an overhead shot was shared online.


Surprisingly, the entire 6,000-person population of the southern Polish hamlet of Suoszowa lives along a single, nine-kilometer stretch of street.

The community, which has purportedly earned the moniker “Little Tuscany” thanks to its design, had 5,819 residents as of 2017, according to CSO Poland.

It is reported that each home on the street has a lengthy strip of land that is included with it. Residents use this land for various purposes, including farming and homes for animals.

Residents of Suoszowa replied by detailing life in their community after others noticed the peculiar but undeniably lovely aerial photographs.

“I wouldn’t trade this place for anything else. It has its charm and atmosphere. As the saying goes, there’s something about it,” one said.

“The whole place looks the same: there is a house and then a field strip, hence the photos’ beauty. One has grain, the other has rapeseed, and the third has something else. The colors look beautiful from above.”

According to reports, a second image and a query on whether the strips of land extending from the village are the property of each home on the street were uploaded on Reddit.

Someone responded: “I just showed this to my Polish friend, and he said yes!”

They continued: “Each house has that strip of land to do whatever on, hence different colors, and they are using the land for different purposes.” Some people leave it, while others plant food there or keep animals there.

“I said I didn’t believe him, but he says it’s true.”

What an extraordinarily odd setup. A village like this is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
